Sell your Home with Virtual Staging

Given the pandemic, home buyers are increasingly turning to the internet to vet homes before seeing them in person. But while this trend may have intensified due to Covid-19, it didn’t start there.

Professional Real Estate Photography – No longer Optional in 2020

In the Portland real estate market, professional photos are the expectation and the standard.

Also, considering the high-end cameras available on […]

Aerial drone videos are a relatively new but powerful marketing tool that can help you sell the right luxury home. Here are two main reasons to use a drone video to help sell your home: 1. If you have an amazing view (like the video below) pictures cannot capture the value of a majestic view. […]

Sell Your Home Fast With Professional Staging and Photography

Spring buying season is here and Portland home sellers will need to make some big decisions. Picking a great real estate agent is first. After that, it would be a good idea to start thinking about who will help you stage and photograph your home. Is staging really that important? It depends. If you have […]

Professional Photographs – should I use to sell my Portland home?

In a word, yes. Unless you are selling a fixer in as-is condition, professional photographs will make all the difference in marketing your Portland home for sale. The number one thing that makes homes sell these days is internet exposure (see our in-depth post here) and I strongly believe the number two thing is the […]
